On a recent trip to Miami, I got an exclusive tour of a $48 million three-story penthouse in Miami Beach.

It’s the most expensive condo for sale in Miami-Dade County, according to Zillow and Trulia.

The 11,031-square-foot condo, at the top of the Continuum tower in the South of Fifth neighborhood, is the personal penthouse of Ian Bruce Eichner, the real-estate developer who founded the Continuum Company, which built the 42-story tower.

The seven-bedroom luxury apartment includes a 6,091-square-foot private terrace with a pool, as well as 10 parking spaces, a beach cabana, and a separate guest apartment on a lower floor.

Eloy Carmenate and Mick Duchon of Douglas Elliman are the listing agents.

Here’s a look inside the lavish $48 million penthouse.

I got a tour of the penthouse on a recent trip to Miami with Douglas Elliman Real Estate. We took the elevator up to the top of the tower, where we stepped into the private grand entryway of the triplex penthouse.

The first room I saw was the expansive master suite.

Wraparound floor-to-ceiling windows filled the room with sunlight and made for beautiful views of the ocean stretching to the east.

I stepped out onto the penthouse’s main terrace and was blown away by its size.

The 6,091-square-foot outdoor space was empty during my tour, but I could imagine it fitting a barbecue area, an outdoor bar, and several spots for outdoor dining and lounging.

And finally, there was the private pool, which sits on the level above the main terrace and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean.

While I’ve seen some pretty swanky penthouses and condos in New York City, this one was truly on another level (pun intended) with its massive terrace, private pool, and incredible views of both the city and the ocean.
